SCS Dean Gabor to Retire
One day last week, Stanley Gabor joined recently retired
university vice president Ross Jones for lunch. In past meetings,
the conversation would have covered a range of issues involving
university trustees, central administration and the School of Continuing Studies,
of which Gabor has been dean for the past 17 years. At this
lunch, however, the talk lingered over reminiscences--and future
On Oct. 12, Gabor, Hopkins' senior dean,
announced his retirement. He will leave the school Sept. 1, 1999.
With Jones, he was looking forward to getting a jump start on
strolling down memory lane--and a new future. And why not? Gabor
says he has had an absolutely marvelous time serving the school
and Johns Hopkins.
Chief Information Officer is
Remember when it was the height of technology to work with a
Selectric typewriter, the kind with the automatic back-erase
feature? That was the height of communications technology ...
before we knew who owned Microsoft, what, 10 years ago? How did
we survive in the pre-information age?
For most of us, individually, the question now
is, How we will survive the information age ahead?
The university took a large step today in
answering that question as an institution, naming Stephanie Reel
as its chief information officer. She succeeds the university's
first CIO, David Kingsbury, who departed in May 1997.
